A dispatch from Butte, Montana,
says: A ledge of free-milling gold ore
lias been discovered on the south fork
of the Flathead river, thirty-live luilcn
from Kalispel and twenty-two miles
from Coram. The ore is found in a
great blanket ledge eight miles wide.
A shaft lias been sunk twenty-four
feet without iindiug the foot wall. Tim
discovery was made by K. 11. Seeley.
Last fall placer gold was discovered
near Hurned Cabin. Acting 011 the
theory tiiat the goid came down the
river. Mr. Seeley started up stream tu
tind the mother lead, lie was re
warded when lie found this tremen
dous ledge of quartz cement, carrying
both gold and silver. At the point of
discovery the river cuts the lead so
that the vein shows on either side of
the river. The ore is hematite. The
shaft iias been sunk near the edge of
the river to a depth of twenty-four
feet. Average samples of the last six
feet proved to be very rich, showing
SSOO in gold and SI.G& in silver to the
toil. The ore is free milling. The
river cuts this ledge for eight miles,
ore is shown up on both sides of
the river. Forty-four claims have
been located, all oil the same ledge.
At Mr. Seeley's solicitations a num
ber of Duluth, Chicago, and New
York men will arrive to examine the
ledge with a view to organizing a
company. The neighborhood lias been
organized into a new mining district,
which is styled the Gold Heed mining

promises that this will become one of

In about ten days the drift will be

THE FIRST WAR TROPHY.

the flag to Senator Mason in recogni

by the following letter from the 01m

The flag is ten by fourteen feet in

A splendid physique enables Gen.
Miles still to enjoy all outdoor sports
and exercises. He is a superb rider,
sitting his horse with the graceful ease
of a cowboy, and a lover of the chase,
especially after the big game of the
pjains; yet he does not disdain, to
gether Tith his charming wife (a niece
of the late Gen. Sherman) to sit astride
of the irrepressible wheel, which he
has encouraged and popularized for
It is in the field that Gen. Miles
shows himself the truest soldier. Quick,
alert, fearless, and untiring, he im
parts much of his admirable enthusi
asm to all of his subordinates, from
whom he exacts and obtains the most
thorough and conscientious effort. He
has been fortunate, it is true, but even
ill luck could never have kept down a
man of his capacity, invention and in
defatigable energy. The civil war gave
him the needed opportunity, and the
Hispano-American war no doubt will
crown his eventful career with added
lustre and lasting glory. His recent
study upon the ground of European
military systems must have admirably
supplemented a long course of profes
sional reading, thought and training.
Nowhere, perhaps, has he given great
er evidence of liis ability for important
command than in his prudent insist
ence upon the invasion of Cuba by a
large, fully equipped, well drilled and
disciplined army. In this stand so free

sons have been military rather than

BEATS A BOOMERANG.
THIS BULLET JUMPS OVER A MAN AND
HITS HIM IN THE BACK.
A Person Will Not Be Salo From an Knemj
Standing on the Opposite Side of a House
If the Claims of a Young Kngll*h In.
ventor Are True.
The man who flatters himself that he
is safe because he is behind a house
when another man is firing off a gyn
at the other side, had better get rid of
that ridiculous notion once and for all.
For a young inventor claims to have
discovered a wonderful new way of
making bullets; and if the new bullet
meets with that popularity which its
remarkable abilities appear to warrant,
it won't be quite safe to be in a bal
loon while an effort is being made to
fire down a well. In short, the new
bullet will, even if it does only half of
'what is claimed for it, upset all old
fashioned notions of the laws govern
ing the flight of projectiles.
Arthur Chalk of Church Place, High
street, Wapping, is the young inventor
in question, and he yesterday told a
Daily Mail reporter that this new bul
let of his would go around corners,
suddenly shoot up in the air and de
scend point first on top of a town or
anything, or fly round and round and
then jump back and kill off an enemy
at the back of the man who fired it.
"I am but eighteen years of age,"
said Mr. Chalk, modestly, "and I am
confident that 1 have invented a bullet
thai will revolutionize fighting. What
I claim, and am prepared to prove, is
that with my bullet I cat*, hit an object
that is round a corner or on the other
side of a block of houses. There is ab
solutely no doubt about the accuracy
of the aim. Supposing, now, you
wanted to hit something that was
round the corner of a mountain. When
you had fotiud the distance between
your gun and the mountain you would
fix your bullet to alter its course at
a certain moment. Then you'd fire,
and the man round the corner would
"Or, say you wanted to hit an ene
my's ship lying on the other side of one
of your own. That would be'the
easiest thing imaginable. You would
just fix your bullet togo straight for a
bit, then soar upward for awhile, and
then rush down point first on top of
the doomed vessel.
"I toll you, my l)ii 1 let will go any
. way and do anything you may want it
to, and I've written to the war office
(to say so.
"Up to now the only communication
I have received in reply is the usual
stereotyped acknowledgment;»but the
patent office people—he did not men
tion names- have valued the invention
at £150,000, and have told me that it
is the most marvelous invention of the

Dr. ,T. C. Ayer's Pills are a specific for
all diseases of the liver, stomach, and
"I suffered from constipation which as
sumed such an obstinate form that 1 feared
it would cause a stoppage of the buwels.
After vainly trying various remedies, I be

a complete cure."
D. BURKE, Saeo, Me.
"For eight years I was afflicted with

Mr. Chalk is a modest and very earn
est inventor, and when he mentioned
that he had tried one of his bullets in a
field, and that the projectile, obedient
to his wish, had circled iu the air about
five times and had then fallen behind
him, he did so with the air of a young
man who is calmly confident that he
has thought out a great thing. But of
the method by which he alleges he ob
tains these unusual results, no hint can
be extracted from him. That is the
secret he hopes to obtain those £150,-

The rsing Pno lias the appearance
of a yellow-backed magazine of twen

column consisting of seven "charac

24 cents per month; and an edition,
inferior in paper and printing, which
costs 10 cents a month.
The Tsing-Pao is the Times of China
and chronicles the wealth and move
